I can confirm this does not work on Android 4.2 where Chrome is the default
browser. In fact, it does not work on Chrome 23 desktop either.

Adam, should I fill a bug report on https://bugs.webkit.org/ or
http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/list ? I believe this is a Webkit
problem.

Thanks

laurent
